Soap is the key. A good cream soap like any made by Taylor's of Old Bond Street give a lot better and more protective shave than any cake soap you'll find local like Williams. It's also easier to work into a good lather.
Nothing is more "ymmv" than shaving gear, but Walmart brand stuff will turn you off to wet shaving.
I have a Edwin Jagger 89, and a Merkur 34. But, lately I've mostly been using a Weber head (made in the US) on a custom handle. All my razors are three piece razors like yours.
I restore vintage brushes and make custom brushes on the side.
